Forum: classic_tv Subject: Re: Can 2 episodes of Mannix be public domain?

No copyrights on any episodes have expired. All U.S. movies and shows released after 1963 had their copyrights automatically renewed. Movies like Night of the Living Dead are p.d. only because they were released without copyright notices.

It may be that just the first 2 episodes of Mannix are p.d. simply because they lacked copyright notices, not because of failure to renew the copyrights after 28 years (renewal was unnecessary).

I doubt that the entire first season lacks copyright notices, but someone needs to check his copies of the first 3 or 4 episodes.
